“Sadly, we’ve seen yet another reason why conservatives do not and should not trust Establishment Republicans. Rewarded by the American people with historic majorities for opposing executive amnesty, their capitulation began almost immediately.
“First, Speaker Boehner whipped votes with the President in December’s lame duck session, so eager was he to fund nearly the entire government through September. ‘Don’t worry,’ we were told. The House would not fund the Obama executive amnesty.
“And how many days ago did the Speaker reiterate his hard line and ...
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v. Burwell. The stakes  couldn’t be higher. At issue is the legality of Obamacare subsidies. The Obama Administration must argue it has the legal authority to issue subsidies in all 50 states, even though the Affordable Care Act only allows for subsidies through an “exchange established by the state.”
That very point was driven home by none other than Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, who admitted in 2012 that , "[I]f you're a state and you don’t set up an Exchange, that means your ...

Atlanta – Tea Party Patriots (TPP) will be out in force Wednesday to make their voices heard as the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments King v. Burwell, the historic case that could decide the future of Obamacare.
Six years ago today, the modern Tea Party movement was born. Activists began to meet and put in place plans to take back our country from tax-and-spend politicians in Washington. We’ve come a long way since then, but none of it would have been possible without the hard work of our volunteers.

We remain committed to our core principles of personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future. Tea Party Patriots believes in the Founding Fathers’ vision for this country, and will strive to ...
Senate Republicans have begun their cave on amnesty. Instead of standing strong and fighting Obama’s executive amnesty, and passing the House-approved DHS funding bill, Senator Mitch McConnell has floated a stand-alone bill. McConnell’s plan would gut any efforts to roll back the president’s lawlessness.
As reported in Conservative Review :
It would leave in place the previous executive amnesty from 2012, DACA. What Senate Leadership won’t tell you is that the standalone bill is designed to fail. Democrats will block the bill and then Senate Republicans ...
Today marks the sixth anniversary of the first wave of protests that grew into the Tea Party movement. We asked National Grassroots Coordinator Keli Carender to reflect on her involvement, and the strength of the movement today.
Keli, you don’t necessarily fit the stereotypical conservative activist. Maybe your living in Seattle has something to do with that. Let’s start with how you got involved; did you have any background in political outreach?
A few months before the first protest in 2009, I joined the Young Republicans in Seattle in order to meet some other ...
Nothing the IRS does surprises me. The news that Lois Lerner collected $129,000 in bonuses during the three years she was wrecking people’s lives, however, is particularly galling.
Millions of hardworking Americans are hurting and struggling to make ends meet. Meanwhile, it’s buckets of cash for the woman who persecuted her president’s perceived enemies. This administration penalizes achievement and success, and rewards those who further its big-government agenda. Sad.
It’s beyond disappointing that President Obama has vetoed Keystone XL. Instead of saying “yes” to thousands of high-paying American jobs and energy independence, he has bowed to the forces of environmental extremism and the far Left of his own party. And a week after our embassy was abandoned in Yemen, he has chosen to keep Americans dependent on foreign oil for the foreseeable future.
